We hope everyone had a Happy New Year. As we move forward into 2023, we would like to provide some updates. We have been steadily receiving shipments throughout the fall and early winter. Inventory levels are returning to pre-covid supply. We are currently stocked with a wide variety of products in each category. Freight rates have also started to subside from peak prices reached during the pandemic. We have and will continue to adjust pricing based on the everchanging freight market. Many prices have already been reduced to reflect the reductions in international freight.

China is still experiencing mandatory Covid shutdowns. This affects production as firework factories cannot operate during shutdowns. China is also fighting a severe shortage in workers. Based off this, we are anticipating late arrivals for items with some not being available until after the 4thof July. However, we do not expect any shortages like the past several years. Our current inventory levels will allow you to find suitable replacements for specific items not in stock.

We are also pleased to announce that our ‘Early Bird Specials’ are back and better than ever. Please see above for the new Early Bird discount structure. Please check our website moving forward for updates on discounts and product availability. We would like to thank you for your continued business and look forward to another successful year in 2023. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns. We look forward to hearing from you.
